I thought it was possible for Attendees to pre-order anything... Lots of my friends pre-ordered the Iron Spiderman there... just like when they did the Stealth Iron Man.

Yeah yopu could order anything you wanted that was on display. I actually thought about the Iron Spider-Man. I got my confirmation e-maILS for the orders i placed. It says i will also get the bonus points.

I'd be tempted if it was ROTS, ESB or ROTJ version. I don't like the ANH costume.

I forgot today was the order day for these.  Oh well, I wasn't planning on pre-ordering anyway.

You build up points for every purchase.  The more you spend, the more points you get.  Next time you order, you can use your points to lower the cost.  I think you need like 75ish points just to get a couple bucks off, but if you order 2-3 figs, you can build up enough points to make it worthwhile.

WARNING: I found this out the hard way - save your points for cheaper priced items, not expensive items!  When you use points on an order, you don't collect ANY points for the remaining purchase price.  I used my points on the Clone Wars Obi Wan to save a few bucks, but now I'm not getting any of the points for him and he's worth quite a few.  You're way better off collecting points on the big tickets, then using them on something smaller.

Take your points and divide them by 20 and you'll see your discount. Be patient, I'm getting my Rebel Fleet Trooper for $13.78, that's with tax, S&H.

The real trick, is that when you DO use your points to partial purchase something, that item becomes INELIGIBLE for the points it would be worth if you hadn't used your points :)
